.36 caliber, 12" octagon barrel with a bright bore that is very near excellent with just a couple small patches of light surface oxidation. This pistol is of very nice quality and has a wonderful and interesting frontier look combined with a saw handle. The pistol features a back action lock with a finger spur triggerguard and an adjustable set trigger. The barrel is engraved on top flat "W.L. HUDSON CIN. O." and retains about 50% strong original blue finish with most loss on top flats where metal shows a pleasing smooth gray brown patina with a couple patches of light oxidation staining but no pitting, and showing crisp clear markings. The breech has a long tang that extends the length of the saw handle and holds a small lollipop sight at the rear. The lock, barrel breech and long tang are all nicely engraved in 19th century scroll. The barrel breech and tang retain 90% bright original color case-hardened finish with only loss being on the actual bolster which has turned brown and shows some light oxidation. The lock is a wonderful smooth blend of faded original color case-hardening blending with a smooth pewter colored patina. The stock is of maple and features a German silver triggerguard which is also engraved, German silver wedge escutcheons and a pewter forend tip. The condition of the stock is excellent with 90% plus original finish remaining. The back of the grip has a beautifully inletted iron plate which accepts the iron key mounted on the front of the shoulder stock. The key has a slot in the tip and once it passes through the stock a small wedge is inserted to lock the shoulder stock in place (the wedge is missing but would be very easy to replicate). The shoulder stock also rates excellent with 95% original finish remaining and being made with no buttplate. There is a small chip from the toe of the stock. The pistol is sighted with a globe front and the lollipop rear with no provisions for any other sighting devices. The pistol and shoulder stock come in a nice old wooden case which appears to be period and could be original. The interior lid of case has a card printed with the name "J.J. McMaken / Hamilton, OH", a state Senator and newspaperman as well as being active in city government. A neat stocked percussion pistol that is very honest, fine and endearing. (17044-1) {ANTIQUE}

Estimate: 3000 - 4000
